Recent negative articles on Carib schools

The St. Petersburg Times Newspaper has published two recent negative articles about Caribbean Medical Schools.

The first one targeted Ross University School of Medicine and the second one focused on Windsor University School of Medicine.

As can be expected, these stories stirred up quite a bit of controversy on ValueMD. You can participate in the ongoing discussions by clicking on the following links:
